Philippians 3:10-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 I want to know1 Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings,2 becoming like him in his death,3 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection4 from the dead.

Pressing on Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect,5 but I press on to take hold6 of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.7 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind8 and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on9 toward the goal to win the prize10 for which God has called11 me heavenward in Christ Jesus. 15 All of us who are mature12 should take such a view of things.13 And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.14 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained. 17 Join with others in following my example,15 brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you.16 18 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears,17 many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.18 19 Their destiny19 is destruction, their god is their stomach,20 and their glory is in their shame.21 Their mind is on earthly things.22 20 But our citizenship23 is in heaven.24 And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,25
